Danish West Indies Interisland Usage
January 23, 1903

This cover is suspiciously philatelic but none-the-less a proper example
of the 1901 4c bister and dull blue diagonal half used as 2c
(Scott 18a - it is possible that this is an inverted frame - 18c - but the scan is inadequate to reach a conclusion).

The stamp is tied by a clear St. Thomas CDS.
St. Thomas is on Charlotte Amalie.
The destination was Christiansted on St. Croix.
